Supporting Children, Families, and Carers
There are a number of ways in which we can support families in crisis. Oftentimes we train families in low arousal approaches to managing behaviours which can be challenging, as well as providing clinical supports and supervisory advice. Our aim is to provide families with an intervention toolkit which can help them to implement a positive psychological framework within the home, in order to create a less stressful environment with coping strategies in place to prevent crisis situations from arising.
We also support adoption services, providing advisory comments, training, support and therapeutic intervention.
Our involvement in services for young people, their families and supporters started in the early 1990’s. From our observations, we at Studio III decided that help was needed for young people and their supporters. We aim to foster an understanding of the young person’s concerns and anxieties through training and one to one work with the young person themselves.
A Studio 3 Story

The school are being trained in low arousal approaches and a specialist member of the Studio 3 Team is working with his family and teaching staff to develop effective non aversive behaviour management strategies.
